It's the one-month anniversary of the shooting rampage that shattered so many lives in our community. The Arizona Republic is running a series that examines how the day unfolded:
It begins with a phone call.
Hi, this is Gabby Giffords . . .
Supporters will gather for a quick photo. A few worried voters have tough questions to ask.
Come to Safeway tomorrow . . .
A friend plans to drop by to offer a thank-you. A photographer will pack his cameras.
Tell me how we can make government work . . .
Friday turns into Saturday.
In the darkness, at the north edge of Tucson, a young man checks into the Motel 6 by the interstate.
A set of lives are on a collision course, hurtling toward morning.
